FS: A modded one with a wee problem £50.00

Modded console with wiikey has suddenly stopped recognising discs. It's not being used much now anyway so letting it go to someone who can fix it. It might need a new drive or it might just be a laser issue. Keeping the wiimotes and nunchucks for the another non-modded console, so it's the console only with all the other bits (stand, cables, powerbrick, sensor). Worked fine until a week ago, then got the disc not recognised refer to manual message - backup or originals give same message. Any questions please ask just in case someone knows something to ask that might make it clearer.

How do I check that? It hasn't been used online since bought or updates applied through original discs, so hasn't been updated in a year, in case that means something.

Would be willing to offer £40 posted, cheapest recorded delivery would be fine, 2nd class or whatever :thumbsup:

Thanks for the offer, but will let it run until the end of the weekend at least (no post before Monday anyway!). Hopefully that will also allow time for anything that can be clearer to be clearer. I'm pretty sure this will be an easy fix for someone in the know, even if that means a replacement part. Also thought I should put up a video tomorrow to show it working and exactly what happens when a disc is inserted. :thumbsup:

OK no problem, will keep an eye out for the video, might bump my offer up to the asking if I can work out what's wrong with it :)

Sounds good. Would suit me more if this was completely transparent anyway. I'll bump the post tomorrow with a link to the video. :thumbsup:

Thanks - but posting up a link to the vid first to give madmandegge a chance to review and see if he wants at asking. The asking price is fair I think. Video coming in the next 30 mins.

Ok, consider this BUMP 1 with a link to the video. I've followed an online tutorial to carefully take the cover off the wii first to double check it isn't a foreign object inside, but nothing like that. So here in the vid you'll see the wii without the cover. I'll put in back on before sending of course!

Yes, afaik everything is fine, but have never used the SD memory card slot. So I will double check all the inputs with a SD card and a gamecube controller first and confirm they are all ok. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the video, I think I'll have to give it a miss though. Was hoping it'd be a simple drive swap, but not sure that'd do it.

Good luck with the sale! :thumbsup:

Cheers, Simon

Ok, thanks - but out of interest, why do you think that wouldn't do it? If I end up left with this, I was thinking of trying that when I find a bit of time.

Good bit of advice.. a new dvd-rom will defo fix the issue. I know deal extreme will sell you refurb laser for about $20 but they probably aren't that great.

If you need help with USB Loader let us know.
#18
Been out of the scene for a while so haven't heard of the USB Loader. Sounds interesting though - will look into it! Thanks both :thumbsup:

edit: sorry jennyrocks, nothing there of interest

OK changed my mind, being an awkward sod, £50 via bank transfer to avoid paypal fees? So will take at asking!

Thanks - provisionally accepted pending a decision on whether to try and fix it based on what I've been told above or sell it.

I'm on the road till Wed so will ask the mods to lock in the meantime, and reopen to give you a firm answer then, if that's ok? Thanks :thumbsup:
